I'm fairly new to this site, so I'm sorry if this queston is blatantly obvious. From what I have gathered about this site, it seems to be in support of using steroids. I have learned in school and from professionals that steroids are bad and illegal. In my opinion, this site is discredited, if it supports steroids. Am i right? What do you all think?
T-Nation supports the exchange of knowledge and fact, even on topics that the general public and "professionals" don't find popular. Are steriods illegal? Yep. Why are they illegal? Mainly due to a massive amount of misinformation, flat out lies, and negative public attitude.
Steriods can be dangerous if abused or used incorrectly. However, like any other drug, they can also be used effectively with little or no negative side effects. Many steriods, when used correctly, have less negative effects than many drugs used for treating arthritis or heart conditions.
T-Nation supports factual exchange on the issue, and the fact is that steriods can change your physique for the better and improve your health with minimal to no negative side effects if you are smart about it.
PS Why do you think your school would know anything about steriods? Unless those "professionals" that you talked to were professionals like Cy Wilson, why would you listen to them? Don't get opinions on the matter, get facts. Then make up your own mind.
If this site is discredited, why are you asking lots of questions in other threads? You're wasting your time, you see, because the information from this site won't apply to you, because we are all juiced to the gills. I'm injecting myself with a cocktail of various testosterone esters right now, and typing with the other hand. I also carry d-bol around in a Pez dispenser. Yesterday and old lady cut in front of me in the supermarket. I roid raged out on her, and threw her into the produce section. Luckily for her some lettuce braced her fall. My heart could explode any minute, or my liver, I have 30023 zits, and my penis doesn't work. But I'm big.
On a bit more serious note. Yes we support steroid use but to that we HAVE to add that we're talking about intelligent use.
If you go thrue the steroid thread you'll see that
I have used steroids, it can be done perfectly safe if you KNOW what you're doing. I made the choice after a lot of research. At that time I'd been working out for 23 years, I was 37 years old and hardly made any progress anymore.
Regarding the point about AAS being illegal....It depends where you live, I live in Thailand and here AAS are OTC.
Do yourself a favor and do a LOT of research about AAS and compare the results with what media have to say. You'll be surprised.
Do a comparison with Tobacco, alchohol, asprin to start with. Then post here again with your results which of these products cause most fatalities/hospital visits per year.
